May the curse of Allah be upon the killers (la) of Imam Hussein ibn Ali (as), Ali Asghar (as) and Hadhrat Abbas Ibn Ali (as) and all those who died in the plains of Karbala, and curse those who humiliated our Bibi Zaynab (sa) as well as the rest of the family of our Imam (as) who lived, Allah I ask that the evil tyrants (la) be given not one single drop of mercy, for the crimes they committed upon Those (as) whom I love, and Those (as) whom You (awj) love the most, the Masumeen (as) You are All Justice, All Mighty.

May our lives be sacrificed for Them (as) and let not one single tear shed that is not shed for love of the Ahlul Bayt (as)

I never knew Imam Hussain (a.s) told you his view upon azadari.

It's a given. If your child went and smacked a helpless old lady across the face, even if he's not concious of his act due to his age, won't you as the parent feel embarrassed? And won't others know you're embarrassed?

OH HUSSAIN, I LOVE YOU MY IMAM, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH THAT THAT, OH I'M GOING TO BLEED, YEH, I'M GOING TO CUT MYSELF UP AND SLASH MY HEAD AND BACK AND MUTILATE MYSELF AND MAKE PEOPLE THINK THAT YOUR SHIA ARE SAVAGES, THAT IS ENOUGH PROOF THAT I AM A MAN AND THAT I LOVE YOU YES.

Give me a break. If someone wants to really prove their love, attempt to read zyarat warith every fajr for 6 months in a row or something, or pay half your wages to send some poor elderly person to hajj.

Imam Sadiq (as) "Be representatives of us, do not be a burden upon us."

brother, why not all of this? why not reading extra dua and saying all the nafl prayers and giving to the poor all you can as well as zanjeer?

I know someone who does the absolute best they can to be a shia of Ali a.s. yet also they do zanjeer (granted they do this at home, rather in a street), soley for love of Imam Hussein a.s.

I do not see any problem with this.

^ because the harm outweighs the benefits. What do you benefit from cutting yourself up? Closeness to the Imam? More religious? There are plenty of other ways to attain those without the negative baggage that comes with mutilating ones body and shaming Imam Hussain (as).

I do not see the shame, I have seen a couple arguments that it gives a bad impression of Islam but I am an ex-christian and seeing zanjeer and matam never made me think badly of those who do this in anyway, and it most certainly was not off-putting in my decision to follow our most perfect faith, to be honest I can fully understand someone doing this.

so, how is this somehow a shame?

Ya Ali Madad

Same here, I am also a convert to shi,ism (from a jewish background) and think that zanjir/tatbir is one of the most beutifull things anyone can do from there love

of Imam Hussein (a.s.) in fact its one of the things which brought me to shi,ism because after i became muslim i saw the tatbir mawakib on the TV ( after the downfall of

saddam (LA) in Iraq) This made me understand how important the event of Karbala was and i went and read about it as i did not know much about islamic history at all

at the time.

Another thing, so many on this board are saying things like "the marjas do not allow it" as if sayed khamenei and sayed fadlallah are the only maraja. For your information

my marja, sayed sadiq al-shirazi says tatbir/qama zani is very mustahab, whether in public or in private.

In my opinion, it is no shame, in fact it is a great honour to shed ones blood for love of Imam Hussein.

I feel insulted that these people are claiming to be shias.

They are hijacking the religion and turning it into some kind of hindu cult.

Also note, the lack of beards.

I feel insulted when i see ultra-nationalistic and racist people claiming to be shias.

Why is it that those who are anti-azadari always seem to be political extremists and often racist, especialy towards Indians and Pakistanis ?

People with these kinds of attitudes would be better off becoming wahhabi, there are no lack of beards among them.

loool they wonna die for Imam Hussain (as)? Show it in real life. Go fight in Palestine. Go get whipped in Israeli jails. Try getting pain inflicted on yourself completely at the mercy of the enemy.

Good point.

Also note how its always in public with their shirts off. Looks like they are trying to impress their own community rather than do a decent deed.

no its not always in public, I know someone who does this inside their house when no one is around.

some people do it because they love their Imam (as).

Imam Hussein shed His blood and gave His (as) life for us, so we could have the right to call ourselves shia today, if Imam Hussein can do that for us whats a few cuts for Him a.s.?

Salaam,

i remember in one of the battles Rasoolallah's teeth broked and this news reached a believer Ovais e Karni who in prophets love broke all of his teeth. tht was harmfull too but it was nt a sin bcos he did out of love. so if we cut and shed our blood out of love for imam husain as , i dont think thts shame or bad. imam husain as and his fly has shed more blood than all of those shias together do. just bcos they do in public tht doesnt mean they r trying to shw off. if thts the thing then from tommorrow everyone will sit at home and cry for imam ..no one will attend majalis and cry in public. in a way we r also trying to give a message to non muslims abt karbala and huge sacrifice of our imam like 2 of our bros/sis already said above. their wordings shw how much mustahab and imp this act is.

    • Feel kindness toward your neighbors and friends, and make dua for them. When you see them, smile and be friendly. InShaAllah they will change their attitude toward you. 4th Imam AS - Supplication for his Neighbours and Friends (Supplication - 26) http://www.duas.org/sajjadiya/s26.htm
    • I don't disagree with anything you're saying, i'm just saying every place has its good and bad, and people often refer to the west as evil all the time, it is not in many ways, like the ways I pointed out. Things like socialist policies in education, health and social security/pensions are very islamic principles. A lot of the West's policies come from judeo-christian values, which aren't very different from Islam. Yes, it is true they have dropped a lot of religious laws now, like allowing abortions and lgbt marriages, but some laws have still stuck around that have roots in abrahamic tradition. No society can claim to be perfect. Iran is an islamic country, but I'm sure a lot of stuff happens underground too, and I'm sure there is still corruption within the government. Ultimately, bro, there is no perfect society, what's important is that you can practice islam freely and to the best of your ability and I think it is possible in many of the western countries, not possible in many of the sunni majority nations. 
    • well, for me personally right now...  I don't know how to prove hadith.  I sincerely honestly dont. Just because a hadith doesn't contradict the Quran doesnt mean its not fabricated.  People intending to twist and corrupt need merit or truths to spin a lie.  One can use something true in the quran like say Umar,   who says I believe in this verse " [verse]" and a good follower of it, but you don't know if he did, for example. It's difficult, and dang near impossible to "follow" and prove those hadiths are true (well, really impossible). I'm just thinking here and presenting my ideas. I would think A hadith that doesn't comtradict the Quran is off to a good start in terms of authenticity.  Reading hadith to understand historical context even if its not authentic actually may be beneficial.  It may explain and connect dots, for understanding why things happened the way they did. Though I've proven (in my personal perspective my long essay of a post) that Muhammad SAW did not err in delivering the message, but may have very well have subjectively  "err'd" in other matters (like when Allah indicates directly that the prophet may be disobeyed by women if they determine his command was not good) (60:12) And then you have 9:50 above, do you think its a good idea to follow any hadiths?  Maybe read them to gain historical understanding but follow them? Eh, its up to you or anyone to make that determination for themselves. I can't judge.   
    • A westernized version of islam? What does that actually mean?  The only interpretation/things I can think of are negative.  Does it mean a version of islam where western culture and values are integrated into it? I do not see the need for that. In the middle east, where you see muslims lacking in any area it is not because they do not apply "good" western values, its because they are applying the bad things of their own culture, meanwhile not caring about what Islam says. Dishonesty, cheating, poor work morale, back talking, not caring for the poor, being unfair, corruption in politics, these are things you might find in the middle east, but they are not because islam is lacking anything, it is because people are not adhering to it, why? Because that would take effort and sincerity. I do not think islam per say is lacking anything and that it needs to change a single inch in any direction. Times change, that is true, but humans does not.
    • Good luck in organic chemistry. My daughter was selected to do a STEM summer in a native Ed. program a few years back. Loved it. The term was not around when I was in school because I'm older than dirt now. But I did pass regular chem.
